Weekly fellowship

The co-workers in Southern California are burdened to conduct a conference among the saints and the churches on the upcoming Labor Day weekend, August 31 to September 1. The planned meeting schedule is as follows:

Message 1 — Saturday, August 31, from 4:00 pm to 5:45 pm
Dinner Break — Saturday, August 31, from 5:45 to 7:00 pm
Message 2 — Saturday, August 31, from 7:00 to 8:45 pm
Message 3 — Lord’s Day, September 1, from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm (Lord’s table at 10:00 am)

The conference meetings will be held in person in the MCC on the LSM campus. A way to participate online will be provided for saints who live too far from the LSM campus or for other reasons cannot attend in person. Because a major purpose of this conference is to carry out the blending among the churches and the saints for the reality of the Body of Christ, in-person attendance is encouraged as much as possible.

Please note that no childcare will be provided at the MCC.

May the Lord bless the churches and the saints through His timely speaking in this conference.

Since starting the Truth Pursuit program in March 2005, the church has covered 1,624 Life-Study messages at a relatively modest pace of 2 messages per week! Anyone following this program would have now read 81.85% of the 1,984 total messages in the Life-Studies, including both Old Testament and New Testament. At this pace, we will complete the Life-Studies in their entirety by sometime in 2026!

Reading two messages of the Life-Studies a week is very feasible. For instance, the Life-Study of Zechariah has 97 pages broken up into 15 chapters. This translates to slightly more than 2 pages of Life-Studies daily (assuming you read 6 days a week). Depending on the pace of reading, this could take roughly 5 minutes of your time each day.

Additionally, in order to assist your digestion of the Life-Study messages, the church can send you emails each week with study questions to direct your considerations for each Life-Study message. If you do not receive these emails currently, you are welcome to join the church’s email distribution list by clicking HERE and signing up to receive these emails.

Given the reasonableness of following the church’s truth pursuit schedule, we encourage all the saints to join in this corporate pursuit of the truth in the ministry together as we all seek to arrive at the oneness of the faith and of the full knowledge of the Son of God, at a full-grown man, at the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ! (Eph. 4:13)

This week we will pause from our weekly reading schedule for the July semi-annual training.

  • There is an opportunity for the saints to apply to participate in one or more of the gospel trips starting in May.

Offerings to the church in Irvine can now be made via Zelle.

The church’s Zelle account is: Zelle@churchinirvine.org

The benefit of making offerings by Zelle is that there are no transaction fees charged to the church. If the offering is for a particular matter please designate that in the memo field.

If your Zelle limit is below the offering amount you would like to give, it is often possible to raise that limit by requesting that your bank increase your transaction limit.

IMPORTANT NOTE: For those already using Zelle related to other matters (e.g., paying rent for corporate housing), you should continue using the same Zelle address as before.

For any questions please email offering@churchinirvine.org. (Note: Do not Zelle funds to this email address)
